Richard Hileman is one of the author/researchers of The Nancy Hanks Lincoln mtDNA Study. Abraham Lincoln was conspicuously silent about the family of his mother, Nancy Hanks. From 1900 into the 1950s, her ancestry was the subject of intense interest and was hotly contested. Hileman investigates new historical evidence revealing the surprising truth Lincoln concealed about his mother's family and ancestry.
